I had such a fantastic time!!! I took this cookery course on the next day I arrived - it's the perfect way to "get into" Marrakech. Karima's personality and encouragement to buy our ingredients at the market and then cook an amazing meal, was just perfect. I felt so at ease. The food was soooo tasty! I would recommend this tour/course to everyone, those new and those who know Marrakech well. وشكرا لكم Karima! Hope you're good and enjoying the sunshine!

Our guide had a wonderful sense of humor and was very knowledgeable about the history of our destinations. I really appreciate that he was sensitive to the fact that the 90'+ temperature was exhausting so he grabbed a taxi for us instead of the long scheduled walk to the photography museum-at no extra charge! That left us with enough energy to enjoy our stroll through the souqs!

I did this with Mustafa and it was a pleasure to do this tour with him. I got to know so much and he showed me many places. Mustafa is extremely informed and could answer all of my questions about food and Moroccan culture/ Islam. Both tours were relaxed and he always had a look after our needs/ my needs. I'm really happy to did this tour with Mustafa and I would recommend to everybody who's visiting Marrakech to do this tours with him!

I took the Taste of Marrakech: Inside the Medina tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm a keen foodie and an accomplished cook - I did toy with a cookery class but this was so much more interesting because our guide Mustafa was incredibly knowledgeable and put everything about Moroccan food into the cultural context, such as why men only cook a few certain things and women do the rest. In just over three hours we walked all over the medina - we learned about the spices, saw mechoui being cooked in a pit and bread being baked in a communal oven... Along the way we tasted olives and preserved lemons, pastries and sweets, savoury doughnuts, ate tanjia and drank Berber tea (all food is included in the price). Mustafa is charm personified - all in all a fantastic evening and I came away feeling I'd had proper insight into Morocco's culinary culture. Highly recommended if, like me, you're a foodie!

This was, without a doubt the highlight of our recent trip to Marrakesh. From the friendly, engaging hosts to the course venue, it was excellent. We were expecting more of an interactive experience with actually purchasing the product, but we were thrilled when we mentioned this, the host Mr Badi took us to the spice market where he purchases his own spices and then negotiated a locals rate for us! The food and instruction was fantastic - I would highly recommend this add on to any visit to Marrakesh. Thank you!
